I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

No Micromanaging in any department I worked in. Flexible Schedule - Not Required to be in at a certain time or leave at a certain time per job title.

Cons

Very difficult to move around in the company and it is even more difficult to get a promotion. High Stress environment for those who work in departments that focus on a bottom line or have to streamline business processes to achieve outrageous budget goals. A very departmentalized and disengaged corporate structure where departments like Sales, Marketing and Supply Chain have zero communication and zero standardized business processes which tie in all essential business decision makers. One of the worst Corporate Cultures I have ever been involved in and I have worked for great Fortune 100 companies that squash DPSG's organizationl culture and structure.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach. You say you want a solid corporate culture and that you value your employees by wanting them to succeed and achieve their goals, but it does note exist. The disconnect starts with the EVP down to Directors who only focus on Reports and budgets and "literally," have no contact with management and empoyees.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A pitiful paycheck, heaping ton of experience a stepping stone in the industry.

    Cons

    9-10 hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week every week= no time for family, either sleeping or working or getting ready for work. The pay is not there for the work that expected. Safety is not a primary concern, getting cases out the back door is. Dr pepper snapple group just takes from its salary employees, took away bonus, took away time and a half from its supervisors on the weekends and forces them to work it for straight pay, the hourly employees make more $ than the supervisors. Senior managers are impossible to work with, shoestring budget and expectation of middle management to make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Pay all supervisors buy the hour, and pay the supervisors what they are worth, upper management at the plant level is grossly overpaid for what little they actually do, and your health care plan sucks for employees, I'm sure you saved alot of $ with that turd you forced down everyones throat!

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most supervisors work pretty hard and long hours. The company is constantly looking for ways to improve.

    Cons

    Evening shift is 4pm to whenever the production line has been restocked (2-4AM-ish). The company rarely promotes from within.

    Advice to Management

    Add a 3rd shift so you can cut back on the overtime you always complain about.
